What could be stranger than spending a hot vacation in Los Angeles only to return to Boom Chicago for Christmas in July? Not much. Being inside the Zaal (Theatre) and having a full 3 course dinner with Christmas music blaring and christmas trees and Santa and gift-giving ... there were times that I was shocked into believing it was December. Hearing only christmas music can really do that to you. Also, we got Turkey, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes... it was the best meal I had since moving to the Netherlands. Our dessert was whip cream and fruit spread out over the naked body of one of the female elves. I declined. I like chocolate cake better than fruit, and there was a long line. But I took advantage of the free wine and food and gave a gift to the promoter Nathan and received a japanese tank top from Cassandra.
